ATRG operates under the Meisler Trailer Rental (Meisler), First in Trailer Service (FITS), Fleet Trailer Rental (Fleet), Advantage Trailer Rental (Advantage) and Arizona Storage Rentals (ASR) brands with operations in Evansville Ind., Nashville and Memphis, Tenn., Walton and Louisville, Ky., Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, Kansas City, Kan., Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Longview, Texas, and Phoenix, Flagstaff and Tucson AZ.
ATRG also announces Mike Burk has joined the company team as general manager and will lead efforts in St. Louis.
“This important expansion continues our strategic objective to build a national footprint via greenfield developments and strategic acquisitions. St Louis is a natural fit for our next greenfield location given the substantial manufacturing and distribution presence there. Under Mike’s leadership we stand ready to serve the storage, cartage and over the road trailer needs of our customers throughout the region,” says ATRG CEO Jonathan Brooks.
